Kelly Clarkson and the Fray team up for summer tour
This year marks Clarkson's tenth in the music business - having made her national debut on "American Idol" in 2002. For a fairly prolific chart topper (she's released a new album every two years since 2005's monster smash "Breakaway"), Clarkson's Charlotte tour stops have been sporadic. She was here with fellow "American Idol" alum Clay Aiken in February 2004 and headlined July 4 festivities in 2006. But her last Charlotte show was a co-headlining date with Reba McEntire way back in November 2008. She's since released two albums.
The Fray on the other hand have become an annual concert attraction here. It last stopped at The Fillmore this past December.
Tickets for the September 12 concert go on sale Friday, April 20 at 10 a.m. at www.livenation.com, www.ticketmaster.com, at the Hardee's Thickburger box office at the venue, and by calling 1-800-745-3000.
Clarkson is also set to appear on a new ABC singing-based reality series called "Duets." She stars alongside Lionel Richie, Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles, and Robin Thicke. According to "The Hollywood Reporter" the series will premier Thursday May 24 - just a day after "American Idol's" season finale.
